If you test positive for COVID-19, it is important to follow the guidance of your healthcare provider and local health department. You should stay at home for about five days if possible. This helps you to limit spreading the virus in public. You may also be contacted by a contact tracer who will ask you about your recent contacts and provide guidance on how to protect others. It is important to notify anyone you have been in close contact with so they can get tested and take appropriate precautions. If you have symptoms, your healthcare provider may recommend treatment or hospitalization depending on the severity of your illness.
